Hampsher, S. Sinceseveral nations with impressive histories of smoking cessation have witnessed the proliferation of Alternative Nicotine Delivery Systems ANDS. Different nations have taken radically different policy approaches to ANDS, ranging from outright bans to actively encouraging use by current smokers. But the relationship between policies and ANDS-related outcomes is not well-understood.
Wildlife and the zoonotic pathogens they reservoir are the source of most emerging infectious diseases of humans.
AIDS, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, SARS, Monkeypox and the human ehrlichioses are a few examples of the devastating effect achieved by cross-species transmission of viral and bacterial pathogens of wildlife. Additionally, historical factors and the coalescence of particular circumstances modify the conditions by which pathogens and species have an opportunity to intermix, evolve and spread. This volume provides an overview of zoonotic pathogen emergence with an emphasis on the role of wildlife.
The first sections of the book explore the mechanisms by which evolution, biology, pathology, ecology, history, and current context have driven the emergence of different zoonotic agents, the next sections provide specific example of disease emergence linked to wildlife, and the final section offers an overview of current methods directed at the surveillance, prevention and control of zoonotic pathogens at the level of the wildlife host and possible mechanisms to improve these activities.
This book will be useful to microbiologists, ecologists, zoologists, entomologists as well as physicians and epidemiologists. Advertisement Hide.
